From "The EXPLANATION
OF THE PLATES in the Book of Heads entitled
HUMAN PASSIONS DELINEATED": PLATE 12
EE how these rustics liquor love
They cry, who want it ; having it they laugh,
O sweet possession ! thou this diff''rence makes,
Thou teems with smiles and sprightly pleasure takes ;
Whilst craving minds are gall'd with keen desire,
For some lov'd object, which they can't acquire.
Thus fav'rites oft enjoy, with souls serene,
What others want and long may wish in vain.
